From Matthew Weber, Chief of Party, Chemonics International:
Ever wonder about animal health in a developing country? What does a country like Afghanistan do to take care of their animals in rural areas? One answer we’ve been working on together with the Dutch Committee for Afghanistan has been small veterinary units in rural areas. We’ve put together almost 100 of them! Click to see the story. With a sustainable public private partnership model and mortality rates below 4% in many cases, this model is changing lives for millions of food insecure Afghans. (Posted 17 October 2017)
DCA Livestock Programs is an NGO that is helping the people of Afghanistan to improve their lives by enhancing the health and productivity of their livestock. In Afghanistan, livestock is the engine of the rural economy. About 73% of the Afghan people are living in rural areas, being dependent on livestock and subsistence farming. Improvements therefore in animal health and production directly impact individual quality of life as well as the national economy.
DCA reaches annually more than one million beneficiaries.
